DWWA judge profile: Ana Sapungiu MW

Ana Sapungiu MW is a judge at the 2024 Decanter World Wine Awards (DWWA).

Ana Sapungiu MW

Ana Sapungiu MW is the Head of Wine Business Development for Amathus Drinks.

She came to London from her native Romania to study an MBA degree, which was completed with a wine project. It was during this project that she caught the wine bug as it involved her importing a pallet of Romanian wine and selling it singlehandedly by knocking at the trade’s door.

She joined Oddbins through the Trainee Management programme, having managed a number of branches, including a flagship branch. She joined the buying department as a Trainee Buyer rising up to the role of Head Wine Buyer where she was responsible for reshaping and redefining the Oddbins wine range.

Ana was first a judge at the DWWA in 2011.
